Only made it through a single month's worth of dreams that time before getting tired of it. At this rate, it's going to take me a hella long time to get through all of these up to the present day, assuming I ever do.

I noticed that I haven't been writing about my dreams pretty much at all in this LJ, anymore. That's because I've just been writing about them in my pencil-and-paper journal. As such, just for the hell of it, I'm going to transcribe (and maybe comment on some of) the dreams I wrote about in my pencil-and-paper journal since the last time I did this. The only difference is that this time, instead of going in reverse chronological order, I'm just going to going in normal order, oldest to most recent. Going to use both <lj-cut> and <lj-spoiler> tags. Also, for some of the longer entries I'll try to break them up at appropriate points here in this LJ post, even though in the pencil-and-paper journal itself they are, as always, just long, unbroken, paragraph-less masses of text. Most of these are just excerpts from longer entries, since I don't write only about dreams in this thing (despite how it may seem).

...Okay, when I started this entry, my intention had been to go through all of the dreams I'd written about between when I last left off up until now. But after transcribing just those two months worth there, I am fucking done for now. I started this post at around 1:30pm or so, and it's now almost 6:00pm. I'll probably pick up from here in a future entry, and do another couple months worth or so. I apparently wrote a fuck-ton more about dreams in my pencil-and-paper journal than I thought I had.
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
I was idly reading back through the pencil-and-paper journal that I've been keeping since January of last year and noted that I'd written about some dreams in that journal which I hadn't mentioned on here, so I figured I'd transcribe them here, just for the hell of it. I'll only transcribe the ones that actually have some substance to them, though, and not the ones that were two line "I had some shitty dreams last night, but I don't remember much of them" entries or whatever (though those are few, since if I bothered to mention my dreams at all, I usually described what I could of them). Also, a couple of these might be a wee bit more... "risque" than the dreams I normally write about in this LJ, so you are warned.

(EDIT) I've gone back and put each dream behind <lj-spoiler> tags as well, to act the same as the <lj-cut> tags, but for those coming right into the post via direct link or something. (/EDIT)

In order from most to least recent (if you want chronological order, read from bottom to top):

(Note: A bit before the above entry there was a substantial gap in my journal where I just kind of sort of... stopped giving a fuck about the whole thing or much else besides. I started keeping daily entries again from Feb 7, 2015 onward, but the last entries before that were Jan 14, 2015, and Dec 6, Nov 14, Oct 5, 8, 16, 20-21, Sep 22, 24-25, July 7, 13, June 1, May 7-9, and April 23, 25, 2015. The last [mostly] contiguous daily entry before I really started sliding was April 18, 2014. None of the entries in that period mentioned dreams. I'll pick up from before that point, though there aren't that many more left regardless.)

So.... yeah. That ended up being way longer than I intended it to be, both in length and in the amount of time it took to transcribe all that stuff (literally about six hours). That last entry there, by the way, was the second entry I ever wrote in the pencil-and-paper journal, since I'd just started it the day before.

Well anyway, there they are, all the dreams I wrote about in my pencil-and-paper journal, but didn't write about in this LJ, until now. I had been kind of sort of considering transcribing the entire journal here to LJ, separating and backdating each entry accordingly, but given how long it took just to do this much... eeehhhhh... I probably won't be doing that, at least not any time soon. >_>;

Not sure why, exactly, but this past week has been the longest frickin' week I've experienced in a while. It's technically Monday now, though. Midnight. Time to go to bed, I guess.

*swirly eyes of weirdness and confusion*

kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
Didn't sleep well last night. Whether that is because of the shitty dreams I had or if those were merely a symptom, I don't know.

Fragments I remember from the dreams:

Dream 1 )

Dream 2 )

Dream 3 )

So yeah, crappy dreams and crappy sleep. One probably caused the other, but I'm not sure which is which.

Woke up with migraine this morning. But worse than that, woke up from a cruddy dream to migraine. Dream went from normal (riding around in car) to nightmare (launching into deep water and sinking like a rock) in no time at all. Not sure if it was related to or result of the headache or just coincidence, but that's when I woke up with headache. Don't usually have dreams with headaches like this, at least that I can remember. Anyway, sent email to work, now going back to bed. -_-
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
Had a dream last night in which I was trying, and utterly failing, to control a car on a very slick, slushy road, with lots of hills and valleys to careen up and down. That's all there was to the dream that I can recall.

What is most annoying about this is that it left me feeling rather tense and stressed out when I woke up this morning, as if I actually had been driving the car rather than just dreaming about it. I don't know if the dream was the cause of this, or merely a symptom of something else. Either way, it was and still is rather irritating.
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
And if you've read any of my previous dream posts, you'll probably know that when I say "crazy, disturbing" I mean "incredibly annoying and mundane."

I only somewhat remember two segments of this, which I'll describe here.

#1 )

#2 )

There were a lot more segments than that, but I don't remember details about any of them. All I remember was that pretty much the whole night I kept waking up at anywhere from 5- to 20- to 60-minute intervals. When my radio came on, it didn't actually wake me up, but became partially incorporated into the dream, though I eventually just reached over and turned it off at some point. The weirdest part was that I kept partially waking up for real during this, which just made the whole thing even more surreal. Like, I'd be laying there in a bed in a room that was nothing like my actual room (or any room I'd ever been in), thinking everything was normal, then I'd blink and wake part way up and be in my actual room, momentarily thinking that was the weird dream bit, and then I'd almost immediately fall back asleep and start dreaming again. Yeah, it was really strange and annoying. And yet, it didn't leave me feeling physically bad, as dreams like this sometimes do, so I just said screw it and went on to work (albeit an hour and a quarter late).
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
I'm awake at 3:30am for no good reason, so might as well rant about something I saw on Google Reader, I guess.

So, it looks like EA is shutting down their shitty Facebook games. And nothing of value will be lost on that day. I'd say that I feel bad for the players who are going to lose money on these games when they get pulled, but... well... I don't. Not in the slightest bit. Those players actively chose to spend money on terrible Facebook games of their own volition, after all, so I have absolutely zero sympathy for them. Maybe this will serve as a lesson to them not to squander money on such asinine, pointless things in the future.

Two of the very, very few Facebook games I have ever tried to play, briefly, were Dragon Age Legends and The Sims Social. The second one I played over the span of a few days, up to the point where I simply could not progress at all without either spamming my Facebook f-list or paying EA actual money to get in-game fake money, both of which were things that I'd rather chug a full bottle of Drano than do. Until it got to that point, it was similar to playing a stripped down, half-assed version of The Sims 1. Well, at least for maybe 10 minutes or so at a time, anyway, before the arbitrary timers kicked in that prevented you from playing at all unless you coughed up some money, which is typical of pretty much all FB games, at least as far as my very limited experience with such things goes. Anyway, after being frustrated that I couldn't do anything in the game anymore, I had the sudden revelation that if I wanted to play The Sims, I could just, you know, play the actual Sims games that I already owned, which are infinitely better than the fucking Facebook version of them, despite being increasingly infected with EA-taint of their own in other ways, especially in the case of The Sims 3.

With all of that said, however, both Dragon Age Legends and The Sims Social were still better than the goddamn Secret War.

That is all.

This is copy/pasted from an email I sent to work a half hour ago:

"Had one of the stupidest dreams I've had in a while last night, which is directly responsible for why I am late. Dreamed I was back in NC in my room at my parents' home, except the bed, nightstand, and clock were the ones from here in WA. People kept waking me up to tell me the most asinine stuff, like hey we're going to such-and-such for lunch or hey there's a TV show coming on in a few hours you might want to see and crap like that. At one point in the dream, I said something like "Well, I'm already awake now, so there's no point to keeping the alarm on" which is apparently when I turned it off irl as well as in the dream. In any case, my alarm didn't come on this morning and I just woke up a few minutes ago. Should be there in 20-30 minutes or so, if the bus is relatively on time."

There wasn't much more to it than that, at least that I can recall. I just remember that I kept looking at the clock and seeing it was around 6-7am and people kept waking me up to tell me the most idiotic, pointless, mundane crap, most of which I don't even remember now. I'm fairly sure that when I was looking at the clock, that was actually me partially awake looking at the clock irl, but which was incorporated into the dream somehow. I know the part with me turning the clock off was part of the dream, but apparently had to have happened irl as well. I was so pissed off when I woke up for real and saw what time it was. I ended up being an hour late for work because of this crap. -_-

In related news, I actually had to run to catch the damn bus, even though I had left early enough that I would have arrived at the stop on time, just because the bus decided to be a minute or two early today. It never fails. If I'm running early, the bus is invariably several minutes late. If I'm running merely on time or a bit late myself, that's when the bus decides to show up early. Ugh.

Needless to say, I have not been left in the best of moods this morning. Oh well, at least it's raining, so I guess it's not all bad.
kane_magus: (The_Sims_Medieval)
As I said before, I'm still having this issue where I'm randomly waking up during the night for no apparent reason. I flipped over the mattress yesterday, hoping this might help somewhat, but it didn't. This morning, I woke up around 5:something.

However, it seems that I did go back to sleep at least enough to have a dream that I remembered. For some reason, it involved me playing ice hockey. Full disclosure: I have never in my life played hockey, ice or otherwise. I don't think I have ever even watched a full game of hockey, aside from maybe news sports highlight reels or Youtube videos of fights or something. Heck, I haven't even played a full game in an ice hockey video game, for that matter. (Best I can remember is playing maybe a few minutes of Blades of Steel on the NES, but only long enough to get into a fight. I had no interest in the actual hockey part of it.)

So, anyway, ice hockey. In the dream, we were playing against this super amazing team that had never been beaten before. They were around 20-30 points (or whatever you call them in hockey) ahead and we hadn't even been playing for more than a few minutes. We, of course, had yet to score at all. The weird thing was that obstacles keep appearing in the rink. In fact, it seemed less like a rink and more like just a supermarket warehouse that had had the floors iced, and the shelving and such were being put back mid-game.

At one point, I was just standing next to our goalie and we were talking about how this sucked so much, and that there wasn't much point to even keep playing. It was at this point that I apparently decided that if I was going to be dreaming about playing ice hockey, I was at least going to win. So, first thing to do was to get rid of all the obstacles on the rink. And then we started winning. To do so, we had to start using some crazy time ninja magic, but we started winning.

So, yeah, I apparently became lucid enough to allow myself to win at ice hockey, even if it did require using crazy super-speed and time manipulation magic, but I wasn't lucid enough to say "What the heck am I doing wasting my time playing ice hockey when there are so many cooler things I could be doing?"

This isn't the first time that I've used weird time powers in a dream after it became partially lucid, either. Nor, strangely, was it even the first such dream to involve a giant retail warehouse kind of thing, either. >_>;

Pretty much ever since I got back from NC at the beginning of January, I've been having rather annoying issues with sleeping. Just about every night it seems like, I've been waking up between around 4:00-6:00am (from going to bed at around 11:00pm-midnight or so, same time as I've always gone to bed). And then from that point on, I just lay there in a nebulous state, wavering between 25%/75% sleep/wake ratio and 75%/25% sleep/wake ratio. It's not so bad on the weekends and the like because I can just say whatever, screw it, and sleep until whenever, but on workdays it's more irritating. I pretty much just lay there and whenever I'm in the closer to 75% phase of being awake, I glance at the clock and calculate how long it will be until the radio is supposed to come on (at 7:24am).

It sucks quite a bit.

Even though I went to bed last night before 11pm, I still feel like I only got maybe 2-3 hours of sleep, if even that much. Feeling nauseous and a bit headache-y this morning (not a migraine at least, this time, but still not fun). Even though the radio came on at the usual time, it hardly even registered and I eventually just shut it off and then didn't get up until about an hour and a half later, just a few minutes ago. Still feeling like crap though. Already sent an email to work as I know I would be entirely useless even if I did manage to make it in. Probably going to go to the doctor in a little while, as this isn't the first such night to occur in the past couple of weeks or so.
kane_magus: (Default)
Went to bed last night a little after midnight and was pretty much feeling fine at the time. Then I woke up around 3am or so with a migraine, which is still going even now. Not sure how much sleep I got after that but I know I got at least some, since when the alarm came on it woke me up from what was among the worst dreams I've ever had. More on that in a bit. I got up and went to send off an email to work telling them I wouldn't be in today, then went back to bed. Only just got up again around 30-45 minutes ago or so, so total time in bed was roughly 11 and a half hours or so. Out of that, no idea how much actual, meaningful sleep there was. Aside from the dream, most of it seemed to feel like a kind of stupor, not fully asleep but not fully awake either. Still feeling incredibly crappy right now.

The dream. )

All in all, this is a really crappy end to an otherwise decent 4-day Thanksgiving weekend. That felt like an actual vacation of sorts. This today, however, just feels like me missing a day of work due to a freaking migraine.

Haven't been sleeping too awfully well lately. I've started a new experiment with valerian root as a sleep aid. I've been unsatisfied with using stuff like Tylenol PM and such so I thought I'd try something different. So far, I've only used it for one night, with tonight being the second night. Results are inconclusive so far. I think I slept fairly well last night, though, so I guess that's a good sign? After taking them, I didn't feel anything like the definitive bodily tingling that goes along with antihistamine in stuff like Tylenol PM. Or, at least, I was already asleep before they fully took effect, perhaps.

However, there is one thing I can say with certainty. Valerian root, even in capsule form, smells incredibly nasty. I can't imagine how people are able to drink this stuff as a tea. ^^;
kane_magus: (Default)
But it's FridaySaturday, so who cares?

(Well, as it turns out... I do. *wobbles off to bed*)
kane_magus: (Default)
I have a migraine now. It set in around 3:00 last night. I only just got out of bed a few minutes ago, despite not sleeping all that much in that time period. I won't be going to work today. It sucks asscrack.

I had some pretty crappy dreams last night, a few of which I can remember.

Dream #1: The thing in the elevator shaft. )

Dream #2: One of the blasted false awakening dreams. )

Dream #3: The horizontal spider-web above my bed. )

I don't remember ever having dreams during migraine half-sleep like this before, but if this is what they're like, then I can definitely do without.
kane_magus: (Default)
First line of the first of the previous journals from yesterday was:

"For once in a long while, I woke up this morning actually feeling pretty good, rather than tired and crappy."

This morning was about as close to the polar opposite of that I could reach without being actually sick. Or dead.

I only just arrived at work about 20 minutes ago. This is because I only got out of bed around 9:30 or so. Even though I went to bed right around midnight or so, maybe quarter after at the latest, which is around an hour earlier than I went to bed the night before.

Also, no interesting dreams to speak of. This is not to say that I had no dreams at all, oh no. The dreams that I remember, however, only started after my radio came on at 7:24am. They all involved me repeatedly trying, and of course failing, to turn the radio off or to turn the volume down on it. I mean, seriously, one of the dreams actually involved me rolling out of bed, picking the radio up, and flicking the switch back and forth several times, and then despairing because the radio was still running. You'd think nightmares like that would have been enough to wake me up. If anything, ironically, it was probably the radio finally automatically shutting itself off at 9:23am (exactly 1 hour and 59 minutes after it came on) that finally fully woke me up, somehow.

I think I'm going to try to bring out one of the air mattresses that we use when family comes to visit, blow it up, and set it on top of the normal mattress on my bed. Try that for a few nights and see if it makes any difference at all.
